Get a new ati x1950xt NOW or save up for a 60gb ps3? - Page 2

post #11 of 30
Well the PS3 as said is very overpriced. If you are also happy with your PC performance i would forego both the CARD and PS3 and spend it on something else mate.

its not really overpriced, sony loses out around 150 or so USD, due to hardware parts prices for the ps3, its worth the money man trust me.

Save up for a PS3, but get a Xbox 360 and a Wii. More fun, same amount of cash.
post #15 of 30
The PS3 has worse graphics than the 360, yet it costs $200 more. Not really worth it right now. Id wait.

You can get an 8800GTS for less than a PS3 or even a 8800GTX for a little more, which will kill the PS3 in terms of graphics performance. And you get DX10 capability.

Plus the PS3 is having problems with overheating and other bugs, Id wait for the next revision.

If it wasn't everything then he'd be looking for a Wii.

I would personally wait until they fix the problems with it first, but I think it's still going to be hard finding one since they are so scarce. You're going to have to wait either months or a lot of time in line to get one.

I plan on getting one eventually when there are more worthwhile games to play and a few revisions come out that aren't so buggy (I got a 1st gen PS2 and it broke so I'm not too keen on launch consoles). For now I'm sticking with my 360 and Gears of War for the next few months

It has to be said perhaps save for the R600 if you wish to play future games on your PC.

X1950XT + Wii would cost about the same as a 60Gb PS3.

PC + Wii > X360 + Wii
